Foam shapes, glue, markers, ribbon
You can make really cute animal bookmarks by using foam shapes for animals found at a craft store or you can cut the shapes out yourself from larger pieces of foam. Begin with a small animal shape or animal face, and allow your child to decorate it with smaller pieces of foam, markers, and googly eyes. Glue a book-sized piece of ribbon to the back of the foam shape. This will be what holds the place in the book. Then, glue another foam shape to the bottom of the piece of ribbon -- a heart or star is very cute here. These bookmarks are great party crafts or gifts.
